Educator Exclusive Exhibit Workshop: Amending America
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Join us for this teacher workshop on the opening day of our new exhibit, Amending America: The Bill of Rights. This professional development opportunity will provide teachers of grades 5–12 with new ways of connecting with the first ten amendments of the Constitution and engaging activities related to the Bill of Rights that can be utilized in the classroom the next day. Teachers will earn 3.5 hours of CPE credits via TEA.
This exhibit marks the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments added to the Constitution of the United States. Students will learn about how these amendments came to be and how each protects our citizens.
Amending America: The Bill of Rights was created by the National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, D.C. The national tour is presented in part by AT&T, History®, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation. The Sixth Floor Museum is partnering with the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum to bring this special exhibit to Dallas.
